Sedentary life 'speeds up ageing'

One of those "no shit, Sherlock" articles, this time from the BBC. It's still rather interesting...

In dumping that sedentary lifestyle, keep in mind that low intensity aerobic exercise is NOT the way to go in the long run. You will get the best results, including significant anti-ageing results, from doing anaerobic exercise (weights) and high-intensity interval training as your cardio as your primary form of exercise. Krav Maga a few times a week doesn't hurt either. Well, yes it does, but in a different, more tantilizing way ;-)

So get off your lazy fat ass and move it, you old fart. Wait, you're younger than me? :-P
